Also in Bundles: All Plugins Pack / Axe Pack

Hot Tuna is a very simple yet powerful plug-in: you can freely adjust the amount of dimming, an indispensable feature for live gigs!

The reference frequency can be changed (from 430 to 450 Hz), when non-standard tuning is required.

Most of the processing is performed in the background, so that the tuner does not impact the performance of the real time audio engine of the host.

All in all, it is a very simple plug-in that will keep you safely in tune!

This plug-in is also available as a built-in effect inside Blue Cat's Axiom, the multi effects processor for guitar and bass.
